Watching over us
T and I got to the church early this evening; we were the first choir members there, and when we pushed open the door we found Florent practising on the organ in near darkness, illuminated by his keyboard light and the BVM. So no apologies for a second blip of her. It really is a very pretty church.
The concert went amazingly well, and there was a good turnout, the church virtually full. Of course it was totally reassuring having the local police doing patrols around the outside of the church during the concert, and when we came out there were three armed policemen outside the door, who stayed till we'd finished drinking blanquette and eating apple tart :-/ Our hosts dedicated the concert to the memory of the recent victims of terrorism.
